The trail has mellow grades and a smooth riding surface, yet still offers fun line choices for more experienced riders.
Open daily from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM.
One Way Only:
This is designated as a directional trail.
Now a loop trail like the rest of the trails RAMBO maintains, the multi-use trail at Matt Park features smooth singletrack over rolling terrain. Regardless of which way you ride the loop, you'll find several short, flowy downhills followed by mellow climbs, as well as one or two long, fast downhills.
Need to Know
Restrooms and a potable water source are very close to the trailhead.
As of May 2022, the multi-use trail at Matt Community Park is directional and includes a new, freshly cut section of trail. The local trail crew has blocked off connecting trails and painted arrows on the ground so that the trail rides as a continuous loop. On Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, the loop runs counterclockwise. On Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, the loop runs clockwise. Hikers travel in the opposite direction. The trail that runs between the start of the loop and the trailhead is still bi-directional.
The following description is the loop in the counterclockwise direction:
Starting from the trailhead sign at the bottom of the concrete path, follow the trail into the woods. The first 0.5 mile of trail is bi-directional, so be on the lookout for riders and hikers travelling the opposite direction. It is relatively flat, but there are some rollers that can be pumped, so it's pretty fun at trail speed.
At 0.5 miles in, there is a junction. Following the directions on the brown marker, take a right. You'll head down a small hill and cross a wide wooden bridge. Here, you'll reach what was previously an intersection. Note the blocked off trail and follow the painted arrows on the trail, taking a left. This begins the first real climb on the trail, but it's short and fairly easy. At the top, you'll reach another old intersection: keep right.
For the next 0.4 miles, the singletrack contours along the hillside. At the end of this section, watch out for a tight turn with a steep, rooty hill before it. This marks the start of a pretty long descent (0.4 mi) that goes through a few small dips. Look out for sharp corners in this section until reaching a clear cut in the forest. When you reach the clear cut, the trail opens up and descends towards the lake. Small bumps here make great jumps for more experienced riders. At the bottom of this descent, you'll reach another old intersection: keep left.
